11:00 am
a great big hug. good morning. maybe i am coming on a little strong but there was a political cringe moment last night. we saw hillary clinton making nice about her relationship with president obama. who looked phony to me. then came the big hug which we didn't see but are asked to believe actually happens. you really think it was an all is forgiven moment on martha's vineyard when they met last night? there is more. president obama will not give back donations from people linked to those unpatriotic companies that are leaving america. the fund-raiser in chief is keeping the cash. that is hypocrisy. the presidential wannabe. >> great to be back in the
11:01 am
vineyard. >> we are looking forward to it. going to be there tonight. stuart: it sounds harsh. it came across as funny to me. i know i am being harsh. mary kissel, wall street journal editorial board, let's take this story forward. that was last night. now move forward. democrats are split. i they going to get hurt? >> hillary is trying to position herself to the left the door w. bush and to the right of rand paul because she is looking to run for president. i don't think she will be looking to make these statements unless she is ready to run. her history is going to make that difficult for her. one interview, the new start treaty, she handed to vladimir putin, the iraq war, she says i was for it before i was against
11:02 am
it. you know what? the positioning is phony, it will take the gop candidate, a good one to point out these inconsistencies. stuart: the democrats are split, two months to election and the president and his former secretary of state are going at it in private. >> of course they are and this is a clear signal hillary is trying to eke out the middle, quote, because she really believed in what she said she would have resigned. stuart: that was a professional politician, compulsive trying to leaders. stuart: there is more. american companies that move abroad to avoid sky high taxes, he called them unpatriotic, roll tape. >> even as corporate profits are as high as ever a small but growing group of big corporations are fleeing the
11:03 am
country to get out of payin taxes. they are keeping most of their business inside the united states that they are renouncing their citizenship and declaring their base someplace else just to avoid paying their fair share. stuart: here comes the hypocrisy. the white house says the administration will not return campaign donations from people linked to those so-called unpatriotic companies. we took the money and are not giving it back. which people donated? which companies are they associated with? >> 20 donors were identified at bloomberg that are involved in transactions within versions. the biggest name is jim rogers, of duke energy in 2012 when the democrats went to their convention in charlotte. he was co-host of that convention, duke energy gave a huge amount of money, millions of dollars to democrats to host it and he resigned, he is no
11:04 am
longer president of duke energy but he is attached, director of applied materials and they have recently purchased the tokyo firm and headquarters in the netherlands and they will do one of these conversions to avoid taxes. stuart: we put the wrong jim rogers on the screen. we put the investor up. sorry about that. >> lots of jim rogers around. stuart: some of them very well known. i am saying this is hypocrisy. you take money from people associated directly with unpatriotic companies. am i being too strong if i call the president to hypocrite? >> you would be completely -- it is not a first-time either. president obama campaign that one point saying we should have publicly funded collections and then instead of actually going that route, he did not take any presidential public money at
11:05 am
all, bypass the system entirely. when it comes to hypocrisy on the campaign fund front hypocrisy is his normal mode of action. stuart: stay there for a second. you are nodding your head. >> is very cynical. this is the hypocrisy of the urban liberal elites, the same people that want to raise energy prices for carbon tax, throw poor people out of work through raising minimum-wages, change the poor to welfare programs that will encourage the poor to live in homes they can't afford through programs like at h a, it is part of the bigger picture. stuart: back to the economy, there's a big deal going on here. you are not spending money. walmart reported sales flat last quarter, that is the sixth straight quarter of declining or no sales growth. they lower their forecasts for the year as well. the stock however is up fraction. same story with liz macdonald and macy's, we saw those the previous week. sales just not there and the slowdown is not just here in
11:06 am
america but german economy contract of last quarter, the fourth largest in the world contract in annual rate of 0.2%. france came in, they gdp a flat forecast. look at the big one. the number 3 economy in the world, japan, it shrinks, it contracted at an annual rate of 6.8%. what is the result of that? we keep a close eye on interest rate, the ten year treasury today, the yield down some more, 2.4%, looks like it is headed lower. germany at yield dropped below 1% briefly in japan pays 1/2%. that is it. according to the latest fox news poll, most do not approve of the handling of the economy, 43% approve, 51% disapprove. carry the story forward. i think we are going to see a change in the news cycle. 4 weeks it has been foreign policy that dominated the
11:07 am
headlines. i think the economy is going to make a come back. >> i want to know who these 43% are that approve of this economy? i can't predict the future, i can't see the president -- and i only expect that to get worse. in terms of the economy you are right. american voters vote their wallets and when you see 2% annualized growth, stagnant wages, when you see a lot of part-time jobs being created americans can't get the jobs they want, good paying jobs, then i think when they go to the polls in november that will be first and foremost on their minds. stuart: we will see but here's an interesting item. criticism of the president is coming from all sides, even the french. the french foreign minister blasting president obama for being on vacation while iraq falls to terrorists. a direct quote from the french
11:08 am
foreign minister, i noticed holiday period in our western countries but when people are dying you must come back from vacation. it has come to is this? is the fringe in august, when the entire country goes on vacation, now they're criticizing president obama for going on vacation? >> i never thought i would see the day. stuart: you have been in france. >> i lived there a while. nothing happens, there is no one there. it is unbelievable. stuart: you are in d.c.. >> it has come to this? >> absolutely. hy define anyone who is a fan of the president these days, he is criticize all over the nation, all over the country, playing around on martha's vineyard is no wonder he will come back to washington d.c. no idea what he is going to talk about on sunday. stuart: when you get so far down in late place to go is up. you could look to see a bounce
11:09 am
back in the polls for the president, couldn't you? >> it is possible but hillary clinton, this is just a beginning. the longer he stays down in the polls and we will see democrats like hillary clinton distance themselves from this president. stuart: just wait until we tell the audience the latest news on obamacare. that won't make the president very popular. thank you very much. let's get to the markets. it is thursday morning on the east coast. we are up 27 points with the dow jones industrials, 16679, slow trading session, then cisco is going to cut 6,000 jobs, reported weak sales growth as well down 2.5%. the s&p, the broader market indicator, it is a slightly, 1/4%. we're 1313, that is dead flat. the price of oil and interesting indicator in times of
11:10 am
international turmoil down today, $1.34 at 96. the restaurant chain, read robyn a big loser and you're going to tell me why. >> read robyn, you think of their gourmet burgers, but shareholders are disappointed to see stock down 20% is hitting a new low. we are also watching noodles, another name in the group, they cut their numbers as well, there was a decline in earnings, hurt by higher food costs and beverage costs. and that is down. the crazy chicken to the downside. down 5%, you see the whole group is lower. ruby tuesday, jack in the box.
11:11 am
stuart: middle america isn't spending. they are not increasing their spending. their stocks go down and restaurant chains go down. anybody who caters to that the vast bulk of middle america is not doing well. >> if you own a restaurant you get the people in. don't know how you get people to come in your restaurant, and a bigger check, done just waterside dish. come john in and order lot. it really is some grime, consumers learn from the great recession and are more cautious. sandra: we would get the burger king story in a second. thanks a lot. the dow is up 30. football is coming to china. huge market and big gamble. here comes the man who is putting up his own money launching a football team in the new china american football league. he thinks he is on to a winner.

11:17 am
people there. the place was packed. we had a young boy come out and steal the football the way they do in the united states. chaney contact sport. stuart: somebody is quoted in the times. >> i puzzled over this quote, it is what the chinese government wants. what happens when the chinese government doesn't want it. thinking of yahoo! and any number of companies that set i made many here. i will make it in china and the government just take it right away. stuart: it is tough. >> i am different from yahoo!. i don't dictate to the government. i partner with the government and they love me. they want american sports. i am the guy bringing american sports, there's no baseball, no football, and they increase their budget from 2.5% of gross national product to 7.5% in the next five years. that is like $63 billion they want to spend on sports and what
11:18 am
kind of sports? american sports because football, chairman lee said, makes bullies into men. stuart: i think i know what you are trying to do. i am speculating here. a lot of billionaires in china, a lot of money and a lot of the really wants to invest in soccer clubs in europe but they are all bought up, russian billionaires' for heaven's sake so you are going in with the expectation that you start american football team and those chinese billionaires' will invest in american football instead of soccer. that is your gamble? >> it is a gamble that i took that is going to pay off because i had rights in china and they need to buy and earn something. there are 15 million votes in the united states, 15,000 in china. 1.4 billion people and they have nothing to spend money on. maria: is in the plate to get the money out of china because
11:19 am
it is not safe in china? these guys are desperate to buy teams in the united states and europe because they don't trust the chinese authorities because if you trust -- if they make too much money they get thrown in jail. that is the history of modern china. >> you are right but the future -- capitalism has taken over china. the horse is out of the barn. they become more like us every single day. but monetary policy will be broken soon. they will be just like us. the arby will be all over the place. it is changing. i have been there since 2008. stuart: don't get the wrong impression. you take a big gamble, very interesting point you are making here. it is a gamble, you are putting $10 million in but tell me what is this about you have got the right to football in china? what rights? >> the government has given me exclusive rights to american
